While this month the fresher's, our future alumni, start their journey. We look back at some of our nursing graduates to coincide with the upcoming Leaps in the Dark event, a celebration of 60 years of nursing education at Edinburgh.

Dr Linda Nugent recommends faking it and appreciates the peer and supervisor support she received whilst at university.
The School of Health in Social Sciences commitment to professional values in nursing, research, teaching and leadership have facilitated my achievements in nursing practice and academia to date and I am very grateful for that and the opportunities provided to me whilst studying there.
One of the organisers of the upcoming Leaps in the Dark event, Linda Catherine Pollock fell into nursing education by accident and hasn't looked back since.
I had wonderfully inspiring lecturers in Nursing Studies...they taught me how important the patient and family is in the care situation and this focus still underpins the work I do today

While studying at Edinburgh University for her Master's degree, Natalie Sanford was able to build upon her knowledge of global healthcare.
I was afforded many unique opportunities while at Edinburgh, many of which would not have been available to me had I not gone out of my way to develop relationships with the other students and the faculty.
Nursing graduates from the University of Edinburgh have become prominent academics, policy makers and innovative practitioners making a national and international impact. The alumni event ‘Leaps in the Dark’ on 4 November 2016 brings together this diverse group of nursing graduates in a mix of plenaries and workshops to document the ‘leaps’ taken by individuals and groups during each of the six decades of our history. There will also be a dedicated session at the Royal College of Nursing International Nursing Research Conference on 6-8 April 2016 for alumni to attend plus a session to be run by current students.
Visit the Leaps in the dark website for more information and to book.
We are interested in the role that the University has played in your life, either directly - in terms of skills and knowledge - or indirectly, via friends, experiences or chance encounters. Please get in touch and you and your experiences could feature on our website.
